Guardian angel Enael can’t seem to keep her human Wards in check. They’re the ones who choose their paths before reincarnating – she’s just there to help make sure they stay on track. But it’s not as easy as it might look.
When she meets and falls in love with charismatic Kaspen, a fellow Guardian, Enael’s feelings about Heaven, Hell, demons, and the life she’s known are turned upside down. Worse, angel-turned-demon Yasva, Kaspen’s former love, still holds him in her clutches. Even as Yasva works toward obtaining complete control of Earth, she taunts and haunts Kaspen’s and Enael’s lives.
Now Enael is forced to face her past (which is centuries long and bursting with secrets), her present (which is terribly unfulfilling and full of questions), and her future (which becomes more uncertain as time passes). Armed with a newfound love and fear of losing it all, she must figure out how to save the world–and the angel she loves. Which side will win? Who will Kaspen choose? Will Heaven and Earth continue to exist, or will everything go to Hell?

Despite my attempts to seem casual, when his eyes found mine, my breath caught and my skin prickled. His irises were white and surrounded by a black ring, the same as all Guardians, but his gaze was penetrating. I was pleased I kept my voice steady, when I said, “Peace to you,” greeting him with the traditional salutation angels use with one another.
This book introduces you to Enael, Guarding Angel for difficult Wards. She meets Kaspen, a fellow Guarding Angel she can’t get out of her head. Thanks to his former lover and her jealousy, her world is turned upside down.
With Guarding Angel, S. L. Saboviec has created an immensely thrilling fantasy story with local flair. The story comprises a broad variety of characters with sufficient depth, expertly woven situations and interesting interactions on Earth, in Heaven and in Hell. I had an exciting time reading Guarding Angel – it is a very compelling read. I was drawn into the story, far away enough from Enael to stay out of harm’s way. Enael is a very complex and stubborn character, one just has to admire how she evolves. This is for you if you like (stubborn and determined) female protagonists, angels and demons, increasing suspense and history.
A very suspenseful book to read again.
